comment What level of threat does selling an app on an app store present to a non-US company?
Thanks for the links - they do not go into specifics of how the trolls might get to you legally, but (as Jon Hopkins also noted) the number of European companies targeted in them (and in various countries) by itself indicates that they probably have some strong attack vectors.

Thank you, that's an interesting attack vector and it seems very appropriate for patent trolls.

One of the things I'd like to know, assuming somebody wanted to get damages from us, where could they even sue us as we have no US presence? Go through Apple/Google and demand a cut of our revenues, or go through our local courts (which would probably be a deterrent to patent trolls looking to keep litigation costs low)..

@ChrisF That's why I was asking for an external reference - I read a lot of internet sources that touch on patent law but I haven't seen this dilemma discussed anywhere and I'm sure we're not the only company interested in the matter. We've had no need of lawyers until now and I guess we aren't quite prepared to go looking (and paying) for one just on account of this question. Also, do we consult a local or an US lawyer? (thanks for the title typo edit btw :))
